Vegan Chewy Chocolate Coconut Bars

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Bliss BarsIt’s dessert season, and today you are in for a treat. These vegan chocolate coconut bars would make a great addition to any holiday menu. Or, you could even gift them to any worthy sweet-tooth in your life. This recipe is reposted from  our guest blogger, the lovely Mara Tyler who runs Cheap & Simple Vegan, and is also the managing editor of Healthy Bitch Daily.

I was craving some coconut.

And some chocolate. And cookies. The result? Something I don’t even think I can describe well enough to tell you how good they are. They’re like a brownie-cookie bar-gift from heaven. I could eat these for my last meal.

I’m telling you…you have to make this recipe.

They turned out with that perfectly light and crisp top, but they were soft and chewy inside. In fact, the texture was so bakery-perfect that they almost reminded me of something you’d buy at a cookie stand in the mall.

And what’s better than coconut and chocolate mixed together, really. Yes, these are an indulgence. A spectacular treat. Enjoy responsibly. (Whatever that means!)

  • 2 cups flour
